“Being head coach for the last seven years of FC Vitosha senior team at both, amateur and professional level, I found myself in need to renew my drills and pursue improvement in all aspects of the game and this book has given me a great opportunity. This book showed me how to enrich my training routine, and to be more organized, without letting the players lose their concentration, while progress from a drills to the next one.
I find it extremely useful that the drills are well-arranged by topics and each chapter concerns a particular theme. Any coach can hold specific and well-orientated session just by having a look in the book and find drills which are right for his team’s quality and ability. The simplicity of the arrangement of the exercises is also great advantage and my players easily understand what I want. Using single drill set up, or rearranging it a little, from the begging to the end of the session, is absolutely perfect for progress and work on specific topic.
Progressive Soccer Training in Grids will make my coaching more fluent and easy, and will also ensure variety of the means I use to become better coach and manage a better team. Strongly recommend this book to any coach who wants to improve him/herself.” – Yasin Mishaui- First team Head coach FC Vitosha (Sofia) / Bulgarian International Amateur Team
“Shows you how to increase training efficiency by using one grid for multiple small sided games and exercises—more time training and less time organizing the session”
Small-sided games are a core part of training. Whether you coach youth teams or elite squads, players at every level gain a host of benefits from practicing in limited space. This includes improving their space awareness, reactions, decision making and using grids also enables you to focus on perfecting specific moves in each session. The downside is that setting up a sequence of drills can be a big drag on your time. It’s very time consuming having to keep rearranging the configuration every time you want to change the exercise. What’s more, it causes players to stand around getting bored and takes them out of the focused mindset you want to develop.
This is why ‘morphing’ is rapidly growing in popularity as a way of managing grid training. This approach focuses on a specific theme throughout the session, with all drills performed in the same grid. Progressive Soccer Training in Grids shows you how to use ‘morphing’ in your coaching arsenal by showing you how to run an entire training session with exercises described for you in detail with diagrams and coaching points which morph into each other to save valuable training time. .
Along with minimizing the time it takes to shift from exercise to the next, all of the drills in this unique book are carefully chosen to offer a progressive sequence. This means that all you need to do is decide what skill to focus on, whether it’s third man runs, combination play or check runs, and then simply follow the series of exercises outlined in each chapter – using one grid during the entire system.
